Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Robert Allan "Bud" Smith (born October 23, 1979 in Torrance, California) is a retired American baseball player. Smith was active at the Major League level in 2001 and 2002, playing for the St. Louis Cardinals. His Major League career was short but notable, as he became the 18th rookie since 1900 to throw a no-hitter. Smith's Cardinals defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 on September 3, 2001, the rookie hurler giving up four walks but no hits, while throwing 134 pitches in the game. Due to Smith's high pitch count entering the later innings, Cardinal pitching coach Dave Duncan was actually hoping someone would break up the no-hitter, fearing that his young pitcher might tire, although he went against that judgment in allowing Smith to finish the game. As of May 2011, Smith's no-hitter is the last one for a Cardinals pitcher.show more
